Rihanna named the richest female musician
Barbadian singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman, Rihanna has been named the world’s richest female musician after she debuted at No.3 in The Sunday Times‘ list of the wealthiest musicians.
With an estimated fortune of £468m, the singer has entered the list behind Andrew Lloyd Webber and Paul McCartney, who are both reportedly worth £800m.
It puts her just ahead of Elton John, with Rihanna’s worth being largely attributed to a 15% stake in the French luxury company LVMH – which is worth £351.6m.
She has also scored huge success with Fenty Beauty, which is now valued at $3 billion (£2.8bn). Rihanna’s reported stake of 15% is said to be worth a cool £351.6 million.
